Circuit History

Like many modern circuits, Blyton Park was originally an airfield. Opening in 1942 as RAF Blyton, it was home to over 2,355 service personnel during the Second World War and the three main runways now make up the long stretches of the tracks.

As well as runways, the site had several large hangars, storage facilities and RAF barracks designed for those doing operational training: a good example being the Wellington bombers, which famously took off from Silverstone.

The base then went on to house the Wellington and Lancaster bombers based in Gainsborough until the end of the war, it was only until after the war that the runways were coated with tarmac and but runways were still used for take-off and landing practice well into the 50s.

It was only in March 2011, when motorsport enthusiast, Richard Usher bought the site, that Blyton was turned into a fit-for-purpose circuit. He went on to open the track to the public as Blyton Park Driving Centre, updating the facilities and extending the total length of the track a year later.

Today, it plays host to a number of motorsport disciplines and events, including rallycross, the SuperMoto and SuperLites series, and, of course, Ginetta racing. As the brand’s official test track, you can now take part in Ginetta’s Driver Development programme, designed to push you to a competitive level on the track.
